The comic shows that the Nile will run out of water by 2050; it would happen because of the Renaissance Dam and our consumption of water. If Egypt were run out of water, all of the Egypt’s civilization would be affected because the River Nile is the main factor of this civilization. Another major effect of the running of water is the agriculture in Egypt. To illustrate, the agriculture in Egypt operated by the Nile and it also mainly depends on the water from the Nile. If the Nile runs out of the water, the farmland will lose its fertility.
Mesopotamia and Egypt civilization are two of the oldest civilization in the world. Comparing those two civilizations, there are many similarities and differences from each aspect of their culture. Firstly, both of them spread their civilization along the river, Mesopotamian civilizations expanded from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers and Egypt spread from the Nile River. Secondly, both of two regions had their own writing script, Mesopotamian developed cuneiform script and Egypt developed hieroglyphic script. Furthermore, the nomadic people in those two regions caused lots of rebellions.
In Egypt only the wealthy people and the Pharaohs got pyramids. In Mesopotamia the main thing people did was farm. They were the first people to use the irrigation system. That is why in Mesopotamia they had a surplus of crops. In Egypt they did a lot of mining.

The text shows that the Nile river served as a source of life which sustained and provided all for Egyptians “who creates all that is good” (“Hymn to the Nile” stanza 9). The text asks questions about who controls the Nile and why it flow the way it does - the text itself answers that it is the Egyptian god Hapy who controls the Nile. Hapy is the god of the Nile (Professor David Wardle, Wednesday the 17th of February) who delivers the drought or the floods affecting the prosperity of the land (“Hymn to the Nile” stanza 1). The
The text: ‘Hymn to the Nile’ helps us to understand the importance of the Egyptian people’s relationship with the Nile as well as their adoration for the God Hapy. This text also emphasizes how dependent these Ancient people were on the Nile and we as academics can record the various effects the flooding of the Nile or lack thereof had on them in their daily
Geography influences history in many ways, as can be seen in the Indus Valley, Greece, and Aksum civilizations. The Indus Valley built large mud walls and drainage systems to lessen the effects of massive flooding. In Greece, many wars occurred between city states due to the differences in culture caused by separation by mountain ranges. In Aksum, they utilized their access to different bodies of water to become the head of trade. Each of these civilizations utilized their geography and its advantages, but also eventually fell victim to its disadvantages.
Mythology influences and impacts many different aspects of life. It can tell us about the past by looking at the traditions and rituals that mythology can establish. This involves studying the past and gaining an understanding of these stories and legends. This can be seen in Egypt and their mythology by looking at the kings and the people they ruled over and their interactions with these legends and traditions. In Egyptian mythology, Osiris was a great Egyptian king and later ruled over the underworld.
After the unification of Egypt the civilization became and empire in 3100 BCE and between then and 2700 BCE was time period known and the early dynastic period. The early dynastic period there was the emergence of two separate dynasties. Later emerged the Old Kingdom which lasted until 2200 BCE this era is famous for the beginning of pyramid building. The most famous pyramid was the Pyramid of Gyza which was built Khufu established the basic framework for many pyramids to come. The Kemet civilization was depended upon the flood seasons for their irrigation system.
The Nile river was the source of everyday life of Egypt. The Egyptians needed the Nile. For their food, water and crops. They believed if you buried their belongings with the preserved body it will travel with the person to the afterlife. Some Egyptians were not buried because there were not wealthy or fit to be mummified.
The Ancient Egyptian religion was always preoccupied with death and spells to ward off danger thus making every day a count down. Religion was the soul of Ancient Egypt, like food and water to the human body, it helped replenish their wisdom. The impact of religion was huge. Religion was a big thing in Ancient Egypt with even the farmers having specific duties, so here is how religion affected farmers. Farmers had a BIG job that got LITTLE attention, about 20 percent went to taxes and an unspoken amount to worshipping the gods.
Thebes was the capital before of Upper Egypt. During the Middle Kingdom, trade and transportation improved. They built dikes to trap the Niles water and use it for irrigation. The prosperity and the reign of the Middle Kingdom did not last very long. In about 1640 B.C, a group called the Hyksos ruled much of Egypt.
Ancient Egypt existed for almost three thousand years, inventing exotic ideas of the Sphinx, mummies, Pyramids, and animal-headed gods that are still well-known today. IX. The "Gift of the Nile" A. The Nile river was essential for Egypt life, providing water, fertilizing silt, and transportation for trading their gold, hardwood, and metals. X. Papyrus and
All the sources needed were there in Egypt with the annual flooding and agriculture strength, unlike Mesopotamia. To complete the argument about Egypt disliking other countries, in The Earth and Its People on page 27, it says, “Egypt largely stuck to itself during the Old and Middle Kingdoms, all foreigners being technically regarded as enemies.” While Mesopotamia wanted to seize other territories surrounding them, Egypt was the opposite. Egypt wanted to use the most of their resources in their own country. Mesopotamia and Egypt have many similarities socially, but the politics were quite different. The agriculture effected both social and political parts of Mesopotamia and Egypt.
The Peret was the ancient Egyptian growing season. During this time farmers tended their fields, dug irrigation canals into the Nile so they could water their fields. The way the flooding of the Nile deposited the nutrients on top of the soil all their ploughs had to do was break up the topsoil before they planted the seed. Instead of having to turn over soil like heavy ploughs in other
The Aswan Low Dam was a dam that was built on the Nile River to control the flow of water when the floods came every late summer. If the Nile flooded too much, then most of the crops would be wiped out. If the Nile flooded too little, it would cause a drought in the neighboring areas. The Aswan High Dam is an extension/upgrade of the Aswan Low Dam, which created the Narsser Lake. The creation of the lake meant that people and important archeological sites near the dam had to be relocated.
